Electron login with userToken


#1

Hello Team.

I have a use case where I need to join the meeting using username and usertoken. 

With the current implementation of Electron Zoom SDK, password is must for logging in.

My question is, is there a way where we can start or join a meeting using username and userToken values ?

 

Please help.

 

Thanks

Hi Dilip,

based on the current design, we provide two options for you:

  1. using user id, token to authenticate

  2. using email and password

so you can not use username and userToken together.

Hi Wei,

Thanks for your response.

In the electron documentation, I see login function which accepts username and password. Where do I need to pass the userID and token to authenticate ?

Using apiKey and secretKey, I’m authenticating the sdk. Will this authentication be sufficient for starting or joining a meeting ?

Or Do I need to login for starting/joining a meeting ?

 

Thanks

Hi Dilip,

we provide two methods to authentication, one method is to use zoomauth.SDKAuth(appkey, appsecret). you need to pass app key and app secret.

another method is to use zoomauth.Login(username, psw). 

you can choose either one of them which will be sufficient to start a meeting.

Hi Wei,

I chose zoomauth.SDKAuth(appkey, appsecret) to authenticate and I succeeded.

With the meetingID, I’m able to join the meeting but unable to start the meeting.

Please help.

Thanks
